The epidemic of chronic disease is making un-reimbursed costs a serious burden for many hospitals. At the same time, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and other forces are requiring hospitals to put more emphasis on population health. By shifting from reactive charity care to proactive investments in collaborative health improvement, hospitals can multiply their community benefit in ways that better meet the health needs of the community, enhance the work of community partners and decrease the cost of uncompensated or under-compensated care for the hospitals. Everyone wins. Click here to register.
